How The Motability Scheme Works

How it works

You simply exchange all, or part of your mobility allowance to lease the vehicle of your choice. You choose the vehicle you want at a price that works for you, and payments are deducted from your allowance every four weeks, then paid directly to us by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) or Veterans UK.

Our standard lease is over three years, or five years if you are leasing a WAV.

All-inclusive leasing

We take care of all the below running costs, so all you need to do is add fuel and go:

  • Insurance (for up to three named drivers for cars and WAVs)
  • Servicing, maintenance and repairs due to general wear
  • Breakdown cover
  • Tyre repair and replacement
  • Windscreen repairs

Before you lease a vehicle through the Motability Scheme, you’ll need to make sure that you’re happy with the Scheme’s terms and conditions and understand how the vehicle can be used .

1. Choose your vehicle

When choosing a new vehicle, there is a lot to consider, including cost, suitability and fuel consumption. To make it easier to find a vehicle that meets your needs, please speak to any of our trained specialists who will ‘best match’ your specific requirements to the new car you deserve.

2. Search for the right Manufacturer

Once you’ve worked out what’s important to you in a vehicle, the next step is to visit a dealer. With 17 dealerships in The RRG Group offering Motability cars from 6 Manufacturers we are bound to have one perfect for you. You can discuss your preferred options with a fully trained Motability specialist at any of the sites and arrange a test drive. We will also discuss whether optional extras or adaptations might help make driving easier or more comfortable.

3. Order your vehicle

Once you have decided which vehicle is right for you, your Motability specialist will complete your order with you using our simple online system. We will then send you an acceptance letter containing your Personal Identification Number (keep this safe as you need it to collect your vehicle). Before making your final decision it’s worth discussing with us the expected delivery time for your new car as this can vary from model to model. It could take a few weeks, but please stay in touch with your dealer in case there are delays. Remember to check the ‘Immediate Availability’ section of this website if you require a car quickly.
